[CELLO FOLK] On her second solo album, The Gospel of Tree Bark, Portland Cello Project veteran Anna Fritz shows she’s got strong singing and songwriting skills to match her cello chops. The powerfully anthemic “On Wisconsin,” inspired by the state’s recent Republican labor-baiting, is one of several moments that shares the political sensibility of her 2005 disc, Wake. But most of the new songs embrace the personal and the sexual as well as social consciousness, including a couple that include transgender characters. The accompanying arrangements for percussion, guitar, piano, horn and cellos feel essential rather than merely exotic, and Fritz’s supple voice can haunt, hell-raise or break hearts as appropriate.
